“Fnatastic hotel”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went here for one week all inclusive with my boyfriend. The gotel was stunning. Food was lovely and plenty of it. Always very clean rooms and staff were brilliant. Made our stay there so enjoyable. Would go back again. Only problem that there was not many english people but everyone was lovely and made an effort to talk to us even if theu did not speak much English. Brilliant holiday

Having spent a week in this what rated as a 4 star I can honestly say that this was one of the worst places I have ever stayed at...Rooms were very dirty, dusty tables, wardrobe, the double bed constituted of 2 single beds with a gap in the middle any movement and you could slide off..The air condition blow hot air, the amount of insect around the windows and carpet was just outrageous..the baby pool was so small and dirty it was beyond believe, the food was one of the worse I have ever came across...the entertainment could have been written and directed by a child, staff had more interest in chatting women and arranging dates rather than serving, I have visited Side resort for over 10 years and in my opinion a 1 star rating will be more than what this hotel deserve.

Travelled last two weeks in August with family, including a 7 year old.

On arrival - nice hotel, bit out of the way and the transfer driver got lost a few times but our rooms were ready and the late night staff went out of their way to help. It is very obvious that english guests are few and far between here but the staff try their very best to communicate effectively.

Rooms are small but clean. A/C works well - too well sometimes!

We had adjacent rooms as requested and a great pool view which we had not asked for.

The hotel is not really a 4* in my opinion - more a 3* but the staff are what really makes this place so welcoming and friendly. Always happy, welcoming and such hard workers - the place was always spotless. You could not fault any of the toilets around the hotel and all public areas were very well maintained. Pool was clean - but some children suffered ear infections including our child and there was also a welcome pool guard monitoring the water slide.

The food I felt was a little disappointing - Not in its quantity or quality but just in the choice. The chefs cooking outside were always delivering hot and well cooked food but it would be nice to see some more variety.


That said there was always something to eat and we never went hungry. Tea time cakes and biscuits were always busy - especially by my son!

Great selection of teas on offer and the self service machines meant no queues at the bar.

the best thing we found at the hotel was the entertainment team. Always mixing with guests, happy to talk nothing too much trouble. My son attended the kids club and made great friends with Noarma. What a very kind, patient and talented lady - very good with all the children, irrespective of their nationality. The team was led by her partner whose name escapes me I'm sorry but together they made the holiday great fun.

Yes there are many nationalities here - as english we were very much in the minority but we were never ignored or isolated. The team spoke a range of languages - including french as Noarma is Moroccan and they ensured that they would do their best to include everyone. At one evening event they counted around 12 different nationalise in the hotel and all were joining in.

Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

This was our 4th vacation in Turkey, and first time in 4* hotel, before we were in 5*. Hotel is in very good shape, very clean, clear water in the pool, rooms are very small but clean, It is even better then some 5* hotels we stayed before. But food was not so good, not enough meat and fish, poor selection of main meals, salads and sweets were ok. Don¨t worry, you won¨t stay hungry, but it could be better. Stuff is very friendly, they speak both English and German. Most of the guests were german speaking people, seniors and couples with small kids. Hotel is not on the beach, they have their free shuttle, well organised. Beach is sandy, and ok, but they dont have stuff on the beach and it is not so clean, lots of see weed... Other hotels clean that weed, but Dosi doesn¨t.

Room Tip: I alwasy go far from the disco :)

have just spent 1 week in this lovely hotel. excellent staff and cleanliness all around the hotel. the food was very good and the choices of desserts was amazing. the town of SIDE was a lovely stroll along the walkway on the beach, which was approx. 700 metres away.. the clientel was mainly german/french but that was not a problem as we found everyone to be friendly. only one bad point,for an all inclusive hotel not having white rum(BACARDI) OR A LOCAL SUBSTITE was beyond me. having stayed in various hotels in SIDE/LARA BEACH AND BELEK WE HAVE NEVER CAME ACROSS THIS PROBLEM BEFORE .the hotel did have premium drinks at a cost. all in all a very good holiday was had by us.

We were for 2 weeks in this hotel and it was beautifull! People are friendly and correct and like to help you to make your holliday the best! Our room was very clean and relaxed. The entertainment people were very active and the food was great, every day different and fresh. The swimming pools are great and also the pool bar super. At night you can eat outside or inside , what you want.Next year we go back again for a great holliday.

Room Tip: as high as possible then you have a great view
